Maidenhead station

Significant improvements are being delivered at Maidenhead station as part of the Crossrail programme.

Maidenhead station will benefit from a number of improvements in preparation for the new Crossrail services including:

  • Improvements to the ticket hall
  • A new lift to platform 1
  • Platform extensions to accommodate the new 200 metre long Elizabeth line trains
  • New platform canopies to accommodate overhead line equipment
  • New signage, help points, customer information screens and CCTV.

The train shed on platform 4/5 has already been removed and new canopies installed.

The work, being carried out by Network Rail, began in 2014. The station will remain open throughout the works.

Crossrail has also been working with the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead on improvements to the area around the station. Early proposals were published in 2014.

In addition to the work at the station, new sidings will be built to the west of the station to accommodate the Elizabeth line trains. Overhead electric wires are also being installed on the line in preparation for new, electric trains and extensive track and signalling work will improve reliability and increase capacity.

ELIZABETH LINE SERVICES FROM MAIDENHEAD

From December 2019, four Elizabeth line trains an hour will allow passengers to travel right through central London without having to change trains. Two Elizabeth line trains an hour will run between Maidenhead and Reading.

Fast services currently operated by Great Western Railway will be unaffected by the introduction of Elizabeth line services.
